Sophisticated Defense Against White Collar Crime Charges
White collar crimes are unique, set apart from other types of crime. These crimes are never violent in nature and are almost always committed for personal financial gain.
They also tend to be complex in their execution and prosecution. Therefore, when facing criminal charges, you need a skilled and experienced defense attorney, which you can find at Martin Law Offices, PLLC.
Types Of White Collar Crimes
The overall category of white collar crimes would most likely fall under some form of fraud. White collar crimes may include:
- Fraud (credit card, mortgage, insurance, computer, internet, tax)
- Identity theft
- Insider trading
- Stock market crimes
- Ponzi schemes
- Tax evasion
- Money laundering
- Price fixing
With crimes of this nature, it usually means that the victim of the crime never came into contact with the perpetrator or was never in physical danger or harm. If you have been accused of a white collar crime in Minnesota, that means that someone has found evidence against you, has caught onto the scheme, and is now feeling the financial effects of this crime. It is vital that you obtain an experienced and qualified attorney to evaluate the evidence against you and formulate a compelling defense on your behalf.
What Are The Potential Penalties?
These crimes can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony offense, all depending on:
- The severity of the crime
- The amount of money that has been defrauded
- The number of people who were financially harmed
- If the defendant(s) had any prior convictions
If you are convicted, you could be facing years in jail or prison, steep monetary fines and payments of restitution to the crime victims. The law is known to be harsh and unforgiving on white collar offenders and these crimes can carry heavy sentences. When going up against tough prosecution, it is imperative that you obtain even tougher criminal defense. Your choice of legal representation could mean the difference between freedom and incarceration.
